The Battle of Bunker Hill was fought on June 17, 1775. The American colonists were surrounding Boston which was full of British troops. Across the Charles River from Boston was the Charlestown Peninsula where the town of Charlestown and Breed’s Hill and Bunker Hill were located. The hills were of strategic importance because they overlooked the surrounding area, including Boston Harbor. The history of the Pine Tree as a symbol of New England predates the European colonial settlements. In eastern Massachusetts, southern New Hampshire and the southern corner of Maine, there lived a nomadic tribe of Native Americans known as the Penacook. “Penacook” is an Algonquin word meaning “Children of the Pine Tree.” flag-works.com

The motto became “Live Free Or Die,” as once voiced by General John Stark, the state’s most distinguished hero of the Revolutionary War, and the world famous Old Man of the Mountain was voted the official state emblem.
The motto was part of a volunteer toast which General Stark sent to his wartime comrades, in which he declined an invitation to head up a 32nd anniversary reunion of the 1777 Battle of Bennington in Vermont, because of poor health. The toast said in full: “Live Free Or Die; Death Is Not The Worst of Evils.” The following year, a similar invitation (also declined) said: “The toast, sir, which you sent us in 1809 will continue to vibrate with unceasing pleasure in our ears, “Live Free Or Die; Death Is Not The Worst Of Evils.”

Located just a few blocks down from Flag-Works over America in Concord, New Hampshire is the state capital. The building was designed by architect Stuart James Park, and built between the years of 1816-1819. Inside the main lobby area of this historic building is the Hall of Flags formerly known as Doric Hall, which was named and designed after a similar display in the Massachusetts capitol building by Charles Bulfinch. The halls feature over 100 battle flags carried by New Hampshire soldiers, representing the Civil War, Spanish-American War, WW I, WW II, and the Vietnam War. The flags surrounding you go back to our nations infancy. Some of these flags are so old that there isn’t barely anything left of them, others are torn and tattered due to going through the riggers of war.
Many of the flags in the hall are here today because of those who gave their life to protect these flags and what they stand for. All of the flags have a story, and this room is not lacking. Some of the flags are from different states, some are from foreign countries and some are from our country. It is quite a site to see to be in the same room inches away from a flag that may have been held by such important people like Franklin Pierce the 14th president of the United States and General John Stark, as well as many other people who founded this great country. Just like the men who fought to protect the flag then, we have men and women now who fight to protect our flag today. Our hope is that one day some of the flags that they fight to protect may be added to this room full of historic flags.
